Allstar Weekend album Suddenly release date
Allstar Weekend groupies, you have a date.
The boys of Allstar Weekend are set to release their debut album, Suddenly, June 22 on Hollywood Records. The band’s record release show will be at The Roxy in Hollywood, California on June 24.
The buzz surrounding Allstar Weekend has been steadily building ever since one of their homemade flyers made it into the hands of a Disney casting director, who then passed it on to Radio Disney’s Executive Director of Music and Programming, Kelly Edwards. Miss Edwards recognized their tremendous potential and added them as a featured artist in the popular programming feature, “Next Big Thing.” In turn Allstar Weekend caught the attention of Hollywood Records executives, who quickly signed them and got them into the studio. They’ve also been featured on Radio Disney’s new “N.B.T.: Making It Big” program, which launched in March on Radio Disney and the Disney Channel, and will continue to run through June 4 leading up to the Radio Disney planet premiere of their next single. The latest episode, along with a 60 second clip of another song from the album, “Hey Princess,” is available now at RadioDisney.com.
Allstar Weekend’s current single, “A Different Side of Me,” has already sold nearly 100,000 tracks and is # 1 on Radio Disney. The band recently completed a Verizon-sponsored mall tour, that drew crowds upwards of 5,000 fans, and have done shows with Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, Forever the Sickest Kids and Emily Osment. They also performed at this year’s Bamboozle Festival, and will announce more summer tour dates shortly.
A Wal-Mart Soundcheck in-store and online campaign will begin June 15, and run through mid- July. Billboard Magazine features Allstar Weekend in their current issue, with the headline “The Next Big Thing.” Suddenly, they truly are!
Mark that date on your calendars, young pups!
